  1. AppKit

// in your NSViewController subclass
import SymbolPicker

@objc func pickIcon(_ sender: NSMenuItem) {
  if let windowController = SymbolPicker.windowController(
      symbol: collection.symbol,
      color: collection.color ?? .labelColor,
      delegate: self,
      title: collection.name),
     let iconSheet = windowController.window {
    // You need to persist this windowController in your app.
    symbolPickerWindowController = windowController
    window.beginSheet(iconSheet) {
      _ in
      self.symbolPickerWindowController = nil

extension ViewController: SymbolPickerDelegate {
  func symbolPicker(_ symbol: String, color: NSColor?) {
  1. SwiftUI

I haven't try it with SwiftUI yet. Any contributions will be welcome.

Improve User Experience

  1. This symbol picker can't be presented like a modal dialog as it also contains a toolbar. To mimic the modal dialog experience, the window is not movable or resizable. You may also want to implement click-outside to dismiss in your app. You can do this by overriding func mouseDown(with: NSEvent) in your NSWindowController subclass.
override func mouseDown(with event: NSEvent) {
  super.mouseDown(with: event)
  if let sheetwindow = window?.attachedSheet {
